December Mission of the Month
FAMILY-November & December Mission of the Month and Special Christmas Outreach
We are working again this year to bring JOY to a family in our area through Family of New Paltz. We are “adopting” a family with three young children ages 7, 4, and one gift for the parents.
If you are willing to help shop for our family their “wish” list items will be available at coffee hour the next three Sundays. The last day to bring unwrapped items in is Sunday, Dec. 9th. We would also like to provide some wrapping paper, bows, tape and tags so that their parents can wrap the gifts.
Christmas Dinner in a Basket-due by Dec. 16th
We are also collecting food items to give the family a ham dinner as well as some breakfast and lunch items. Following is a list of suggested items, but anything non-perishable is appreciated.
Yams, canned vegetables, soup, pickles, olives, corn bread mix, scalloped potatoes, Christmas plates, napkins, dessert mix, pancake mix, syrup, mustard, mayonnaise, canned tuna. Also, special holiday items would be a nice touch and gift cards are always helpful. The food will be placed in a basket and wrapped with a card. Last year we had enough food for a basket for our “family” and three other small ones. As always, you may contribute to the mission fund.
Collection bins will be outside the social hall and in the Ed Building beginning November 18th.
Thank you-Mission and Outreach Committee
